Vic Stearnard was a Lt. Commander and a rival of Calvin Lee's. He developed a strong grudge against Lee after Lee took the promotion that Stearnard felt rightfully belonged to him.
It was later revealed that Viv had broken into Lee's apartment to steal the meth that he himself had originally planted, all for the sake of getting back at Calvin and as such, was drugging Calvin, presumably in the hope that Calvin would be stripped of his promotion.
- James Harvey Ward later appeared in the main NCIS series in the Season 9 episode, Playing with Fire (episode).
